Over 70 bochurim gathered at a storefront in Crown Heights this week to hear a talk from world-renowned author, counselor and lecturer Rabbi Manis Friedman.
The first-of-a-kind question and answer session for single Lubavitch bochurim took place at the newly established Besht Center, a shul for post-yeshiva bochurim and newly married yungerlight.
Participants remained riveted for over three and a half hours, as Rabbi Friedman spoke about what Chassidus is, and how it is meant to affect those who learn it – and says that if it doesn’t – something is being done wrong.
Rabbi Friedman stressed how important it is that a person truly know himself, for when he does, he is able to find relevance in what he is learning and what he is being taught.
Rabbi Friedman, who spoke to COLlive.com before the event, also explained what is hisbonenus – introspection – and why it is necessary.
During the question and answer session which followed the talk, many hot-button topics were discussed, such as shidduchim, marriage, the internet, and more.
wow the besht shul is amazing
P.S. the name is also cool
where’s the audio?
PLEASE PLEASE, MAKE IT HAPPENED VERY VERY FREQUENTLY BOYS NEEDS GUIDANCE, TEACHING AND LOTS OF YIRAS SHAMAYIM, NUUUUU WAKE UP… GUYS KNOW HOW TO COMMIT AND TAKE YOUR RESPONSABILITY IN YOUR HANDS. WAKE UP BOYS
You make Manis Freidman look good. LOL. Your secret admirer
it was great yes obviously Q&A’s re shidduchim were addressed…i hope they have more like this.
Usually when put the words “single bochurim” and “manis friedman” together, one would expect him to speak about shidduchim and the dating system,
Did he touch on that subject at all?
perhaps he do another such session and discuss dating and shidduch issues…
There was info about this before it happened; date, time and place. Look at COL’s old posts
Can someone please link to audio?
You do an article like this BEFORE THE SHIUR, so more people can go, instead of just read about it later?

A bochur that’s engaged is a bochur and he isn’t single, therefore eliminating your issues with the typist.
Now shut your mouths and go to bed.
